by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5:46 pm ET) Mets outfielder Michael Cuddyer was held out of the starting lineup Wednesday against the Padres because of a stiff neck, ESPN reports. Darrell Ceciliani will take his spot at left field and bat sixth.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:42 pm ET) The Red Sox transferred pitcher Brandon Workman to the 60-day disabled list on Wednesday.

The move cleared a 40-man roster spot for Alejandro De Aza, who was acquired from the Orioles on Wednesday. Workman has yet to pitch this season while recovering from a strained elbow. He went 1-10 with a 5.17 ERA and 70:36 K:BB ratio in 87 innings in 2014.

(5:41 pm ET) Reds outfielder Marlon Byrd has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a wrist fracture, the team announced on Wednesday. Byrd was hit by a pitch on Tuesday and was forced to leave the game with the injury.

In a corresponding move, the Reds announced they have officially called-up infielder Ivan De Jesus Jr. and released Donald Lutz, who had Tommy John surgery on May 1, to clear room on the 40-man roster.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Twins are underdogs (+132) in Game 2, per VegasInsider.com.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5:21 pm ET) Athletics reliever Drew Pomeranz will be used in all types of relief situations, including late in games, manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday.

Pomeranz was activated from the 15-day disabled list Wednesday. He went on the DL in mid-May due to shoulder inflammation. He began the season in the rotation, going 2-3 with a 4.40 ERA in eight starts.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Swihart replaces Sandy Leon, who was hitless in three at-bats in Wednesday's opener.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5:13 pm ET) Red Sox third baseman Pablo Sandoval is in the lineup for the nightcap of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Twins. Sandoval sat out the opener.

Brock Holt, who started at thrid base in Game 1, moves to right field to make room for Sandoval, who will hit fifth in the batting order.


Orioles' Jimmy Paredes batting eighth Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:13 pm ET) Orioles designated hitter Jimmy Paredes has been dropped to eighth in the batting order for Wednesday's game against the Astros.

Paredes has spent much of the season as the team's No. 2 hitter but has also seen several looks at the No. 3 spot. He's hit lower than third just three times, including a start in the No. 6 spot on Tuesday. Paredes is just 2 for 25 in his last seven games.

The Orioles are underdogs (+120) in Houston on Wednesday, per VegasInsider.com.
